The Odor of Giving

Odors come from things that are burnt on the altar. God distinguished giving as a “pleasing aroma”. The metaphor for the sacrifice is a sweet smell. A sweet smell that was acceptable and pleasing to the Lord.

A PERFECT OFFERING gives a SWEET SMELL unto the Lord.

“Pleasing odor” appears more than 40 times in the Bible, which shows us how God makes it a point to let the offeror know that He is pleased with the aroma of the offering. Why is the aroma of a sacrifice important to God? Why does He even notice the scent of the offering?

How does your offering smell to the Lord? I’m sure you already know the answer to this question. Only the offeror really knows if the offering will have a pleasing or a displeasing aroma to the Lord. He or she will know it because the offeror knows the status of one’s own heart. Aside from this person, it is only God who truly knows the depths of one’s heart.

Would it be God or Satan who would be pleased with the smell of your offering? There were offerings that were made to false gods in Ezekiel 6:13, and this had a pleasing aroma to the idol, but the smell of the incense displeased the Lord. God demands that we worship Him alone. Any offering that is made to any other object of worship sends out an offensive smell to the heavens.

CLEANING UP THE MESS

Most of the time, people are blind to the effects of NOT honoring their word, when, in fact, it is to your power for your “yes” to be yes. Accordingly, operating with integrity  will ALWAYS benefit you even when it is hard or inconvenient to do.

Jesus tells us, “But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one” (Matthew 5:37 NRSV, emphasis added).

Whatever does not honor your word, in which your “yes” is not a “yes” and your “no” is not a “no,” is from the enemy of God.

You operate under the flesh — under the evil one when you dishonor your word and behave out of integrity

What can you do to clean up the mess you are in? How can you restore the integrity in that particular area in your life?

FEAR IS OVERCOME BY SPIRITUALITY

The more you are aware of your true divine nature in the Lord Jesus Christ, the more you understand that everything is within your control. You can CHOOSE your future. The events in your life depend on how RESPOND to your experiences.

Let me tell you the truth that Satan never wants you to discover. Evil does not stand a chance against your own power. You have nothing to be fearful about when you have faith in the one TRUE GOD.

Being FEARLESS is not about never being afraid. It is about acknowledging that something scares you and knowing that it can do nothing to harm you. You are protected. You are safe. God is your refuge.

Our instinct tends to take over when danger is lurking. However, when you let your spiritual mind take control, you will experience the PEACE of Jesus Christ.

Learn how to take control of your future according to the purposes of the Lord. Sign up for this FREE Course and experience the Power of Prophecy.

CHRIST IN ME

Do you realize what it means to say, “Christ is in me”? How powerful is this? If you are being attacked by Satan, if he is trying to steal God’s promises, kill your hope, and destroy your future, declaring “CHRIST IS IN ME” is the best defensive attack you can do.

You begin to experience the power of this statement when you realize God’s power within you. You begin to understand what exactly it is to have the power of Christ residing in you. Jesus said, with man, it is impossible, but with God ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE?

THE TRUE MIND AS A CONTEXT

We have the power to create for ourselves the context for our experiences. The context of our experience is akin to a frame by which we live our lives. The mindsets we have are based on the context by which we experience the world. Instead of changing contexts that do not work for us, we allow ourselves to be influenced by the contents in our lives that we too become contents of our experiences. Being a content of experience does not allow us to be responsible and to have power over our circumstance. Remember, contexts are not fixed. You have the power to shape them according to your will because you are a god.

What do I mean by being a context? Werner Erhard says, “Context is decisive.” What did he mean by this? Think about it this way. If you drive two hundred miles an hour around Time Square, New York, you end up in jail for endangering the lives of other people. On the other hand, if you drive two hundred miles an hour around a racing track, you get a medal. Context decides the implications for our actions.

TRANSFORM YOUR PERSPECTIVE

“The process of illumination does not improve the world, as we know it; it only improves our concept of the world, our perspective of the world.”

– Archbishop E. Bernard Jordan

Unlearn what the Conditioned Mind has taught you to believe. Satan has filled our minds with lies and it caused us to doubt God, to doubt ourselves, and to doubt our destinies. If you are wondering why you are stuck in the same defeated situation, then you need to evaluate what you are NOT seeing in your life.

As you identify these areas of pain and suffering, join our LIVE conference call so we can help you see these experiences from a SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE, according to the mind of God. Here are ways to join:

1) Call 515-604-9266

Go to a quiet room, and on a piece of paper, write down what the Holy Spirit will reveal to you things you need to “unlearn.” List down these things the Holy Spirit reveals to you right now.

 

LET THERE BE LIGHT

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)

What is bringing darkness into your life?There was a time when the whole world was in dark abyss. God caused the light to shine. In the midst of darkness, it was God who spoke light into existence (Gen. 1:3). God is the source of all the light and without Him no light would exist. He is the fullness of light and there is no darkness in Him (1 Jn. 1:5).

As believers, Jesus calls us the “light” of the world. As Jesus is the light, we can be the light, because we are created in his image and likeness. Jesus did not say, “Turn on your light.” He said to allow your light to simply shine. Do we allow our light to shine in this world?

Find out how you can LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE. Archbishop Jordan’s book, School of Gods is now available via the Book of the Month Club.

Not only does the Book of the Month Club provide a pathway to knowledge, wisdom and insight, it also sets you up to be in attendance at the Spring Session of Prophecology 2018: Birthing House: The Latter Rain, February 23-25, 2018.
